Workshop at Constant, Brussels / online, Dec 7 – Dec 12, 2020
The work session Bureaucracksy brought together artivist practices around the imaginative re-appropriations of rules and regulations. It was looking into critical attitudes, artistic positions, creative bureaucrats, that re-purpose and re-orientate operators of bureaucratic power.
“This work-session investigates the governance of techno-social systems through the prism of bureaucracy. The execution of rules is an essential element of computation, of digital infrastructures, and of the societies that they operate with. Critical practices of listing, naming, filtering, tool making, care and sharing require that some books are kept” (from the announcement)
I gave a 1hr talk about Table Practices – Knowledge, Statistical, Transactional and Mathematical Tables.
